Low-power video sensor targets IoT smart vision systems
CMOS image sensing chip design company SmartSens Technology has announced the launch of a 1080P 30fps low-power video sensor specifically designed to power Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The SC210IoT, says the company, offers features for new generation smart devices, including superior low-light sensitivity, an automatic exposure control (AEC) function to enable fast wake-up from intermittent system operation, and lowered power consumption optimized for always-on everyday applications.

"The new product launch in our SmartPixel series is geared towards the future of IoT and not the past," says Chris Yiu, CMO of SmartSens. "SC210IoT is only the beginning of a long line of new sensor products to come. We will be seeing OEM to bring innovative products to accommodate in our modern daily life."

The SC210IoT supports integrated AEC to optimize sensor to reactive devices from power-off or sleep mode to active streaming with a response time as low as 60 to 70 ms. This, says the company, represents a huge leap forward in applications that collect crucial, timely visual data such as home and commercial surveillance equipment.

As a result of the faster response time, the SC210IoT also achieves ultra-low power consumption - one of the top priorities for "always-on" devices, by preserving video bandwidth for only waking up to- and recording images and videos upon receiving a visual detection. Power consumption is 60 mW while standby power is less than 10 uW. This, says the company, will lead to a longer battery operation that is required for wireless applications, especially for devices with AI designed for detecting objects, motions, and activities beyond human eyes.

The SC210IoT is available for sampling now with mass production planned in June 2020.
